Testopedia explains Breakpoint Schedule

Breakpoints are quantity discounts offered by mutual fund companies. The more shares a customer purchases in the same fund, or family of funds, the lower her sales charges will be.

Ex: $1-20,000 invested: 8.5% sales charge
$20,001-50,000 7% sales charge
$50,001-100,000 6% sales charge
$100,001 + 5% sales charge.

In order for a fund to be considered a full service mutual fund it must provide its customers with breakpoints.
